Cristiano Ronaldo To Miss Portugal Games In Wake of Rape Allegations

Mayorga has been interviewed by law enforcement twice in recent months and will cooperate further with the Las Vegas police department's reopening of its investigation into her case.

Various reports of the Portuguese superstar involving in a rape incident has dominated the headlines over the past couple of weeks but on Wednesday, Ronaldo denied any wrongdoing and said that he will wait for the results of the investigations carried out regarding the matter.

Ronaldo was left off the squad for Portugal's second game in the Uefa Nations League at Poland on October 11 and a friendly match in Glasgow against Scotland three days later.

But the 26-year-old Gray surrendered five earned runs in two frames in that contest, and has a 7.11 ERA in his last seven starts. Rizzo's homer was the only extra-base hit for the Cubs, who were lost for just the second time in their past six games.


However, Ronaldo told Santos and Gomes that he is still fully committed to representing and captaining Portugal going forward, and has no intention of retiring from the national team any time soon.

On Wednesday, Ronaldo took to Twitter to "firmly deny" Mayorga's accusations, adding that he will not "feed the media spectacle".

Ronaldo's denial came as lawyers for his accuser said they had obtained damning correspondence between the footballer and his legal team. It's normal. They want to be famous to say my name, but it is part of the job.

The 33-year-old was also missing from the last Portugal squad, with Santos citing the player's summer move to the Italian champions as the reason.

Kathryn Mayorga, 34, of Las Vegas, accused Ronaldo, in a 32-page lawsuit filed last month with a district court in Nevada, of raping her on June 13, 2009.

It said the assault left her with "severe emotional and bodily injuries including but not limited to anal contusions, post-traumatic stress disorder and major depression". Mayorga, however, contends in her lawsuit that both a nurse at the hospital and a Las Vegas police detective discouraged her from filing charges against Ronaldo because of his fame.
